Evolution Well Services has entered a long-term electric hydraulic fracturing contract on Jan. 11 with a Permian Basin operator to begin in fourth-quarter 2022. The contract will employ Evolution’s patented electric fracturing technology coupled with an innovative Simul-frac completions technique.

The electric fracturing technology will be fueled by 100% natural gas via aero-derivative turbines rather than conventional fleets that rely on diesel engines. By switching to a lower carbon fuel, the Evolution Well Services team will help reduce the GHG emissions required to complete wells in the Permian Basin.
